Press Release: For Immediate Release
Ground-breaking New Book Reveals How To Identify And Overcome Imposter Syndrome Forever With Unique Approach
Ground-breaking new book Ditching Imposter Syndrome, by Clare Josa, teaches a revolutionary approach to get rid of Imposter Syndrome, for good.
The book, published by Beyond Alchemy Publishing, is the culmination of Josa’s 15 years spent working with business leaders to tackle Imposter Syndrome.
Imposter Syndrome - the fear of being found out as a ‘fraud’ or ‘not good enough’, even when you’re performing well, is a previously little-understood phenomenon that affects up to 70% of people, at some point in their lives.
Grounded in the results of the 2019 UK Imposter Syndrome Research Study, which Josa has recently published, the book reveals why the usual mindset-based, cognitive approaches don’t actually work, meaning most people with Imposter Syndrome believe they are stuck with it. Josa shares exactly how Imposter Syndrome affects performance and causes so much stress, anxiety and damage to careers and home life.
She also shares her unique five-step system for tackling Imposter Syndrome with practical exercises based in practical psychology, NLP, Leadership Development and the neuroscience of performance, to help readers identify and then fully release Imposter Syndrome’s subconscious drivers, in a way that’s ‘fast, fun and forever’.
Josa says: “It is heart-breaking how many outwardly confident people are struggling in silence with Imposter Syndrome. But it doesn’t need to be that way - I want to remove the shame and taboo around the topic.
“And I want people to realise that it’s something that, with the right guidance, can be tackled quickly and simply. I help people to create breakthroughs in minutes, not months.”
The recently published research study found that 52% of female respondents and 49% of male respondents are struggling with Imposter Syndrome ‘daily’ or ‘regularly’, negatively affecting their performance, their productivity, team working relationships, their mental health, and their employer’s profit. Men and women handle Imposter Syndrome differently, and women are disproportionately disadvantaged by the way it affects them.
The study also found Imposter Syndrome to be a key driver in the gender pay gap and lack of gender equality in leadership roles. Yet it found that few businesses have strategies in place to spot problems before they escalate, or any form of staff training, to support those with Imposter Syndrome.
The study found that women, in particular, are more likely to leave their employer to get a promotion, as a result of Imposter Syndrome, meaning companies are losing some of their best employees due to a problem that can easily be handled. Women also reported that they have avoided applying for a promotion or pay rise they knew they deserved (45%) and avoided opportunities to shine (30%) in the past year. 61% said they also routinely did not speak up with their best ideas, for fear of being found out as a fraud.
Ditching Imposter Syndrome, published by Beyond Alchemy Publishing, is available in hardback and eBook from 30th September 2019.
